Al Streelman was named the head baseball coach at Washington College in June of 1997. Streelman’s connection to the college spans four decades. He was the chief assistant coach for the Shoremen from 1979 until his promotion to head coach, specializing in pitchers and the infield.
Streelman guided the 2010 Shoremen to their first-ever Centennial Conference Tournament berth and their first appearance in a conference tournament since the 1984 Middle-Atlantic Conference Tournament.
A 1969 graduate of Washington College, Streelman was a four-year member of the varsity baseball team and played every position on the team but catcher.
Streelman’s 191 wins at Washington represent the third-highest total for a head coach in team history, a history which dates back to the 1870s. He trails only Eastern Shore Baseball Hall of Famer J. Thomas Kibler (299 wins) and Maryland State Athletic Hall of Famer Edward L. Athey (330 wins).
